Le CORBUSIER - Maison du Brésil

Le CORBUSIER - (1959) - Maison du Brésil (Paris, France) This housing block at the Cité Universitaire complex in Paris (coordinates 48°49'04 N - 02°20'37 E) was designed by Le Corbusier for Brazilian students and researchers, was opened June 24, 1959. Initially, the design had been assigned to the great Brazilian architect Lucio Costa. The latter appealed to his friend Le Corbusier, already author of the Swiss Foundation, to help develop the project. But the project was so profoundly changed from the initial sketch that Lucio Costa abandoned his paternity of the house!
